The Original American Malcontent

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

Scooter takes one for the Team

In Indictment's Wake, a Focus on Cheney's Powerful Role

 Vice President Dick Cheney makes only three brief appearances in the 22-page federal indictment that charges his chief of staff, I. Lewis Libby Jr., with lying to investigators and misleading a grand jury in the C.I.A. leak case. But in its clear, cold language, it lifts a veil on how aggressively Mr. Cheney's office drove the rationale against Saddam Hussein and then fought to discredit the Iraq war's critics.

 Addington's Role in Cheney's Office Draws Fresh Attention

On the morning of July 8, 2003, I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby, then-chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, had a two-hour meeting with New York Times reporter Judith Miller at which Libby gave information to Miller in an attempt to discredit former ambassador and Bush administration critic Joseph Wilson.

Mysterious 'Official A' Is Karl Rove

 Washington - In a sign of the trouble lingering for the Bush administration, the indictment handed up Friday in the CIA leak probe refers to someone at the White House known as "Official A."

Excerpt from Hugo Chavez U.N. Address

In just seven years of Bolivarian Revolution, the people of Venezuela can claim important social and economic advances.

One million four hundred and six thousand Venezuelans learned to read and write. We are 25 million total. And the country will-in a few days- be declared illiteracy-free territory. And three million Venezuelans, who had always been excluded because of poverty, are now part of primary, secondary and higher studies.

Seventeen million Venezuelans-almost 70% of the population- are receiving, and for the first time, universal healthcare, including the medicine, and in a few years, all Venezuelans will have free access to an excellent healthcare service. More thatn a million seven hundred tons of food are channeled to over 12 million people at subsidized prices, almost half the population. One million gets them completely free, as they are in a transition period. More than 700 thousand new jobs have been created, thus reducing unemployment by 9 points. All of this amid internal and external aggressions, including a coup d’etat and an oil industry shutdown organized by Washington. Regardless of the conspiracies, the lies spread by powerful media outlets, and the permanent threat of the empire and its allies, they even call for the assassination of a president.

Gosh free food, education and healthcare - that's horrible, he must be stopped!
(that was sarcasm)

As The Empire Begins to Fall

Well the times are changing, the people are clearing their eyes and just starting to get the faintest outline of the elephant in the living room. We’ve got Rove,Cheny, Libby, Delay and Frist under investigation and monkey boy’s approval rating dropped below 40, also If you’ve seen him lately it’s east to tell he’s either doped up or he’s cracked, either way I don’t think he’s gonna be able to hold out until 2008, he’s on the verge of mental collapse. All of this makes me happy, however I still don’t see a progressive movent stepping in to offer an alternative and the pussy ass democrats are talking about moving more to the center, giving up choice and well basically selling out, oh wait they did that when they fisrt started taking corporate contributions. Well at least the common folk are getting pissed off for a change.

Rove Going Down
Well, it’s his forth time up to bat and I’m thinking he’s about to strike out. I heard this weekend that Karl claimed he would resign or take a leave of absence if indicted.
Now that’s the best news I’ve heard in the seven years.

Cheny Going Down Too
Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- A special counsel is focusing on whether Vice President Dick Cheney played a role in leaking a covert CIA agent's name, according to people familiar with the probe that already threatens top White House aides Karl Rove and Lewis Libby.

National Clandestine Service
Just what we need, another government agency with which to better spy on us.

The Forth Estate
It now seems that Miller functioned with more accountability to U.S. military intelligence officials than to New York Times editors. Most of the way through her article , Miller slipped in this sentence, "During the Iraq war, the Pentagon had given me clearance to see secret information as part of my assignment ‘embedded’ with a special military unit hunting for unconventional weapons.” And, according to the same article, she ultimately told the grand jury that during a July 8, 2003, meeting with the vice president’s chief of staff, Lewis Libby, “I might have expressed frustration to Mr. Libby that I was not permitted to discuss with editors some of the more sensitive information about Iraq."

No Remorse: Killing our own

U.S. PRE-EMPTIVE NUCLEAR STRIKE PLAN
This is from 2003, and talks about what we have been hearing recently about possibly launching tactical nuclear strikes against Syria and possibly Iran after the next 9/11 – coming to a city near you.

So do you feel it? We hear about new 9/11’s they need it, then the fuckhole sign an executive order or something that authorizes the military to place us under quarentine in the event of a flu epidemic. Martial law. So what it going to be? Will we provoke Syria to unleashing the might of Allah against us, or will we just attack our own people again and blame it on them? Will we unleash the Avian flu on our own population just like our government terrorized us with Anthrax in 2001?

I’m not trying to use fear tactics here, I’m just saying get ready because these ruthless motherfuckers are going to do some bad shit to us really soon to try to boost the President and the parties ratings. They need for you to be frightened and angry, bloodthirsty for revenge in order to maintain our perpetual state of war. So let’s start talking now about what they plan to do to us.

Operation Northwoods
Top Secret memorandum describes U.S. plans to covertly engineer various pretexts that would justify a U.S. invasion of Cuba. These proposals - part of a secret anti-Castro program known as Operation Mongoose - included staging the assassinations of Cubans living in the United States, developing a fake “Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington,” including “sink[ing] a boatload of Cuban refugees (real or simulated),” faking a Cuban airforce attack on a civilian jetliner, and concocting a “Remember the Maine” incident by blowing up a U.S. ship in Cuban waters and then blaming the incident on Cuban sabotage.

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar-soaked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own.... And if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own, and not the American style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans."
General David Sharp, former US Marine Commandant,1966

Secret Wars of the CIAFEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, headed by Loius Guiffrida, a friend of Ed Meese's.... He's going about the country lobbying and demanding that he be given authority, in the times of national emergency, to declare martial law, and establish a curfew, and gun down people who violate the curfew... in the United States.

Columbus Sucks!

Columbus, the Indians, and Human Progress
"They... brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawks' bells. They willingly traded everything they owned.... They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features.... They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane.... They would make fine servants.... With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want."Christopher Columbus

Scott Mclellan is One Smug Dick
Q Well, people like Howard Dean, are asking -- they're, like, the jury is still out because they want to know what her opinions are. What would you say to Howard Dean, beyond the spinnage [sic] you're giving now, to give something specific --
MR. McCLELLAN: I'm sorry, beyond what?
Q The spin --
MR. McCLELLAN: I'm giving the facts.
Q No, you're not answering directly, Scott.
MR. McCLELLAN: Actually, I'm giving the facts, April.
Q No, you're not answering directly, Scott, about her opinion.
MR. McCLELLAN: Actually, I'm giving the facts. There's some spin going on from you. (Laughter.)
Q Okay, so anyway -- okay, thank you. So, anyway, on another subject.

Bush Job Approval Hits 41%—All Time Low; Would Lose to Every Modern President
Pessimists now outweigh optimists in all regions except the Western U.S., where voters are evenly divided on the nation’s direction. The South, the area exclusively devastated by Katrina, is actually more positive in its outlook on U.S. direction than the east, where voters are twice as likely to say the nation is heading in the wrong direction as the right direction, by a massive 64% to 33% margin.
Both sides twist and hype the case of a CIA agent’s leaked identity. We document what’s known so far.

I wonder If I could be a supreme court justice too?

Today is filled with more dirt as will be the foreseeable future. I was bummed that Sunsara stopped accepting comments on her blog, I just found it the other day and I really would have enjoyed some dialog, eh, so it goes.. She must have got fed up with one or two of the assholes that festered there, perhaps someday I’ll have to do the same, but not today, I eat festering assholes for breakfast. Yum.

Longtime Confidante of Bush Has Never Been a Judge
By Timothy Williams
President Bush nominated Harriet E. Miers, the White House counsel, as his choice to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor this morning, his second nominee for the Supreme Court in the past two and half months.

Times Reporter Tried to Cut Earlier CIA Leak Deal
Reuters
Washington - New York Times reporter Judith Miller tried a year ago to make a deal with the prosecutor investigating the leak of a CIA operative's identity but the prosecutor would not agree then to limit her testimony to Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide, her lawyer said on Sunday.

Back To The Evolutionary Drawing Board
You've probably heard about the landmark trial taking place this week in Harrisburg, Pa. The Dover, Pa., public school district is the first in the nation to require its schools to teach intelligent design in a science classroom. That's why eight families are suing the Dover School district for violating the separation of church and state. And while Dover, Pa. is the only district currently embroiled in a widely publicized trial, it's certainly not the only one working to undermine science in the classroom. A new report released today identifies the top 10 danger zones in the country where science and science education is under attack.

Ronnie Earle, partisan fanatic?
Molly Ivans AUSTIN, Texas -- Jeez, that was quite a hissy fit Tom DeLay had, calling Ronnie Earle a rogue prosecutor, a partisan fanatic and an unabashed partisan zealot out for personal revenge.

Permanent Occupation
Rep. Barbara LeeIf you are inclined to believe the president, we will be in Iraq, in his words “as long as necessary, and not a day longer.” Members of the Bush administration, including the president, have been at pains to dispel any notion that they have plans for a permanent military presence in Iraq.
